The Technocracy of The Clockwork Republic is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Clockwork Android Prototype with an even hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.733 billion Clockwork Republicians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cogwheel. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Clockwork Republician economy, worth a remarkable 3,817 trillion Cogs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 325,371 Cogs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Human sacrifice to the metaphorical altar of Mammon ensures national prosperity, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Clockwork Republicians, citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', and internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Clockwork Republic's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Clockwork Republic is ranked 222,368th in the world and 8,445th in the South Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -36.12 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
